    Good for him.

    I wonder if he could have had the firearm on in the open (illegal in TX) if he could have detered the situation altogether.

    Guess we will never know.

    The fact he had a Concealed Handgun License had no bearingon his use ofthe gunbeing legal. Thatshould fall under - "useless trivia about this story" not a focal point of any relevence. Mentioning it like it means anything takes away from the fact one CAN defend himself legally without a permit involved in Texas.

    You can strap one on open or concealed atyour place of business or at home in Texas if you have control and care of the property. His CHL was not needed in that situation for him to carry it or use it like he did.

    When I see reporters make these irrelevent additional remarks it only serves to further re-inforcean "anti" mindset. By including it in this story one can be naturally led to the belief that a CHL was required, and that since he jumped thru that hoop for the Govt he MUST be OK, so therefore THAT"s what makes it OK that a gun was present at all - all Govt approved steps were followed -You can startforming a line on the left to comply please.... All the while legit uses by the public are curbed by this "anti" brainwashing prevailing.

    I cringe every time I hear a reporter ask or describe about if a gun held by a private citizen was "registered". Once again normalizing the idea that they should be -

    Avg sheep:"whaaat? There's no registration? Gosh I always thought there was so starting a registration can't be bad? right?"



    P.S. OC is currently prohibited in the general public without some kind of commission from the State of Texas. On your own property you can carry however you want - no permits required.

    "No innocent victims were injured" What the hell does that mean? Perhaps she meant no one else was injured but the criminal.

    I love how the store owner "opened fire" like he hada chain gun and was spraying bullets all over the place. How about he just shot to defend his life?

    Perhaps the befuddled reporter, like most reporters at a loss for words (letalone the facts), was probably just rehashingsome standard/typical cliches they use when reporting on police shootings. You know,stories about "trained" and "professional" LEOs hitting "innocent bystanders" or property with errant bullets ("collateral damage" as they do on too many occasions) instead ofan armed citizen who usually just hits his/her target -- the criminal.
